Emily has been suffering from extreme nausea as a side effect of radiation [boo!]. Last week they found a medicine that finally brought the nausea under control [yay!]…and then caused her to break out in terrible hives from head to toe [boo!]. Most recently, Emily was given a new medicine to take care of the hives which unexpectedly helped her feel much better overall [yay!]. So much so that she took her first real walk outdoors since arriving in New York two and a half months ago.
It’s been a roller coaster ride but Emily is officially on the home stretch. She just has three days of radiation treatments left – JUST THREE DAYS!!!
